Subject: OASIS mailing list archives not preserving character set choice oforiginal email
To whom it may concern, As the issues editor for my TC, I've been occasionally been copying text from the web page view of mail archives into the JIRA issue tracker for our TC. Specifically, note: http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/sca-bindings/200909/msg00012.html http://www.osoa.org/jira/browse/BINDINGS-88 (I'm looking at this in Firefox 3.5, and the Jira version ends up with funky characters around the word "never". In tracking down this problem, I discovered that the mailing archive entry: http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/sca-bindings/200909/msg00012.html does not report a character set as any of the HTTP headers, and if it did so, this problem could probably be avoided. In viewing the source of the original email as delivered to me by the mailing list, the "UTF-8" character encoding was clearly specified: ... --=_alternative 0063BA458525762C_= Content-Type: text/html; charset="UTF-8" Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64 DQo8YnI+PGZvbnQgc2l6ZT0yIGZhY2U9InNhbnMtc2VyaWYiPlRhcmdldDogSkNBIGJpbmRpbmcg c3BlY2lmaWNhdGlvbiAoQ0QwMyk8L2ZvbnQ+DQo8YnI+DQo8YnI+PGZvbnQgc2l6ZT0yIGZhY2U9 ... In any case, I can fix the presentation of the page http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/sca-bindings/200909/msg00012.html by telling Firefox to use the UTF-8 character set directly (assuming I notice that I have to do this). Here's to hoping you can fix the issue... -Eric.
